Here’s what the Untapped staff is reading in the HQ today:
- See an all-male, completely nude staging of Hamlet in Prospect Park this summer [Time Out]: Fans of William Shakespeare and/or naked people may recall that a local company called Torn Out Theater made news last year with an all-nude, all-female production of The Tempest. From August 10 through August 13, the same troupe will further explore the Bard’s body of work with a naked all-male staging of Hamlet.
- A Suffragette Restores Her Dream Home, an 18th Century Stone Cottage in Kingston, N.Y. [Brownstoner]: Tired of renting, in 1919 suffragette, home economist, writer and lecturer Annie Eliza Pidgeon Searing began hunting for her dream cottage, ending up with a decaying 18th century stone cottage in Kingston, N.Y. She embarked on a restoration adventure at a time when interest in all things early American was high and “ancient” houses were being rediscovered. With the help of a restoration architect, she transformed the dilapidated little structure at 142 Pearl Street into a modern, livable home.
- MTA: Do Not Be Alarmed By This Mysterious Green Goop On The Subway Platform [Gothamist]: A puddle of green goop was spotted waiting for the subway at the 34th Street-Herald Square station this morning, but actually it’s nothing to worry about, and is in fact the good kind of goop, according to the MTA.
- NYC Ferry captain offers inside look at what it’s like navigating New York Harbor and beyond [amNewYork]: Growing up on the shores of Long Island, NYC Ferry Capt. Chris Hulse learned how to sail not long after he learned how to walk, so when the city announced the brand-new ferry service, he jumped at the opportunity.
